Test 918 – Viswanath and Sharma

Viswanath and Sharma,
The second day,
A flow of runs, a river of shots,
Of guides, of dabs, of pushes, of flicks,
All beautifully middled or flown off the wrist,

And the total grows, as it does,
Pulling India away,
A pitch with nothing, though Willis found bounce,
And both sides found it easy to score,
The fourth time in a row they had played out a draw.
